Why Should I refinance now? The Benefits of Refinancing
Reduce or consolidate debt.
If you have balances on your credit cards or store accounts or
other high-interest debt, refinancing can provide the funds to reduce or eliminate it, which can
save you hundreds ($400 on average) per month in interest payments.
Improve your credit scores.
If your credit is compromised now, refinancing to a lower payment
may help you improve your FICO score after you make 6 on-time payments (this could also
qualify you for a lower rate, free of fee loan.
Take advantage of your equity.
Take cash out for big ticket items like home improvements, to
pay for college, a second car, or a trip!
When should I refinance my home? When does it make sense?
There are costs associated with most refinance loans (though there are also loans free of fees nowadays!). But most of the time, if you can lower your interest rate by a percentage or two, the benefits can quickly outweigh the cost so it may make sense to refinance now.
